Leeds United’s decision to axe Madger Gomes appears justified as midfielder joins Doncaster Rovers

Madger Gomes left Leeds to join Sochaux last summer.

Less than one year after leaving Leeds United, Madger Gomes is back in England. Gomes has returned to Yorkshire and signed a two-year deal with Doncaster Rovers (as confirmed on their official website).

Last summer, Leeds decided to let Gomes leave. He joined Sochaux in the second tier of French football. But since departing Leeds, he has not done enough to make the Whites regret their decision.

Gomes joined Leeds from Liverpool with a high reputation. But he only played two senior games (both in the EFL Cup) before leaving. Leeds received an undisclosed fee for the midfield man.

The ex-Spain youth international moved to Sochaux to get regular playing time under his belt. But he only managed 10 games for the French side before being axed.

 

Gomes received a red card during his time with Sochaux and managed just nine appearances in Ligue 2. In January, he was on the move again. Gomes moved to NK Istra, who play in the Croatian top-flight.

But after just five games for Istra, Gomes is once again changing clubs. He will hope that a return to Yorkshire can bring some continuity to his career.

However, the 22-year-old faces a battle to convince Leeds that they made a mistake letting him go. Leeds have moved on since then and Gomes would have struggled for game time last season.
